Fuji Bikes is suspending sales to police departments over alleged concerns about how bicycles are used as ‘weapons’ by law enforcement.

BikeCo., Fuji Bikes’ distributor for North America, announced plans to open a “dialogue with police departments nationwide to address how bikes are used in police activity and to ensure that police’s on-bike training reinforces that bicycles are not a weapon against our community.”

“To hear that there are instances where bicycles have been used as a weapon against those who are vulnerable, those speaking out against the unjust treatment of people of color, and those standing alongside them advocating change, has deeply upset our community, our company and the heart of the Fuji brand,” the company wrote on social media.
